Today’s container garden artisan is none other than the sensational Candice ‘Sweetstuff’ Suter of Sweetstuff’s Sassy Succulents, who is probably best known for upcycling unusual things into succulent stuffed works of found art. No object is safe from Sweetstuff and her playful ingenuity; birdcages, barbecue grills and handmade pottery are all fair game! Read on to learn more about Sweetstuff and to take a peek at some of her colorful projects.
Sidenote: Appropriately enough, I’m blogging from a jetliner to the succulent-rich city of Phoenix Arizona, where I’ll be participating in Troy-Bilt’s Spring Training Event along with the other five #Saturday6 bloggers. We’ll be visiting Desert Botanical Garden, testing Troy-Bilt products, enjoying fine dining and attending a spring training baseball game! The other bloggers selected this year were Amy Andrychowics of Get Busy Gardening, Matt Mattus of Growing with Plants, Dave Townsend of Growing the Home Garden, Helen Yoest of Gardening with Confidence and Noelle Johnson of www.azplantlady.com. I’m thrilled to be included in such a great group! Now where was I?

This birdcage belonged to Candice's mother, and reminds her of her love of plants each day.

I would love to see this inventive vertical garden once it fills in!
Candice's creations are wonderful examples of how much you can accomplish with succulents in the home and garden, with or without containers. She lives to show others how it's done, and does so via videos on Youtube, blog posts and her Facebook page. Be sure to check her out!
